So what do they expect as the "actual amount of the item"?! I've been a buyer/seller on eBay and other sites for far too long to not understand that what its listed is THE PRICE.

Pathetic yes...but they still manage to nap some people. The best thing to do is to report it - I'm not sure if craigslist has a place to report scams, but searched and found this
